Viking Boats are the most credible motor yachts on the market.
Viking Yachts is one of the few shipyards that is as committed to innovation as its competitors. Viking Yachts is an industry leader in terms of performance, engineering, and craftsmanship for motor yachts. The company’s guiding principle is “creating a better boat every day.”
Viking Yachts has over fifty years of experience in boat construction and a commitment to excellence. Viking Yachts was founded in 1964 by brothers Bob and Bill Healey when they acquired Peterson-Viking Builders, a modest New Jersey builder of 37-foot wooden sport fishing yachts. Since then, the company has become a market leader in semi-custom fiberglass yacht manufacturing models. With the introduction of the Viking 33 Convertible in 1971, the shipyard’s first full fiberglass model, and the Viking 40 shortly thereafter, interest in the shipyard and its motor yachts soared. Viking Yachts was the premier manufacturer of fishing and pleasure boats at the time, selling over 400 yachts in ten years.
With more than 4,000 Viking Yachts delivered, the manufacturer has earned a reputation for building 90 percent of its vessels in-house, making it the preferred shipyard for many experienced yachtsmen and tournament fishing champions. With the exception of mechanical components such as engines, pumps, and entertainment systems, the remainder of the boat is handcrafted by the yard’s skilled workforce to the highest quality standards. Over the years, the family-owned and -operated business has expanded its manufacturing and production lines, now offering premium convertibles, cruisers, and motor yachts. Viking Boats’ facilities are capable of producing more than 100 yachts per year, with models spanning five manufacturing lines ranging in length from 42 to 90 feet. It is clear that Viking’s yachts benefit from this natural quality control advantage, as each yacht is imbued with the company’s characteristic dedication and drive for innovative innovation and exquisite luxury. Dedicated employees evaluate each boat meticulously during the construction process, paying close attention to the smallest of details to ensure increased dependability, safety, and a superior finished product.
